Google pizzeria near me and you’re likely to get plenty of great suggestions. You may even be looking for Marcos near me. Yet, can choosing Marco’s Pizza give you the same options as Mario’s Pizza? Below, we compare the two restaurants.
You may be wondering why we’re talking about Mario’s Pizza when you were searching for Marcos near me. Furthermore, if you love Marcos, we’re not trying to take you away from your favorite eatery. However, Mario’s Pizza offers some different menu items they don’t and you can enjoy both on different days.
Americans love authentic Italian food and who knows better how to create delicious dishes than immigrants from the old country? Both Marco’s and Mario’s histories begin with strangers in a new country.
Yet, that’s where the similarities end. Marco’s founder, Pasquale Giammarco left Sulmona and settled in a small town in Ohio. Mario’s family hails from Calabria and moved to an Italian community in Brooklyn, NY.
Moreover, the cooking style of each family’s origin is different. Sulmona is in the Abruzzo region in central Italy along the Adriatic coast. The cooking from this region highlights the flavors of game meat, seafood, hearty vegetables, and staple grains.
Calabria is part of southern Italy in a region known for its bold and spicy flavors. The Calabrian chef prefers simplicity and the natural flavors of the ingredients. Cooks from this region abundantly use chili peppers, citrus fruits, olive oil, and seafood.
Although Marco’s offers you a choice of crust, Mario’s Pizza specializes in NY style pizza. Our founders, brothers, Tony, Mario, and Vinny, grew up not far from the first American pizzeria. With a signature crispy yet foldable thin crust, NY style pizza became the favorite across the continent. Today, the brothers continue to specialize in this delicious, hand-tossed crust. Moreover, you can order our pizza in several sizes:
Plus, we also toss a few specialty pizza pies:
Additionally, we also offer a cauliflower and rice-based crust for those with dietary restrictions. While we take allergies very seriously, we only have one kitchen. Thus, cross-contamination is a possibility.
Marco’s specializes primarily in pizza, pizza bowls, salads, and subs. Plus, they offer 4 flavors of both boneless and traditional wings.
However, Mario’s serves pizza, salads, and popular Italian entrees:
Moreover, depending on location, you have 2 choices for dessert at Marcos: double chocolate brownie or cinnasquares. Whereas Mario’s offers 4 Italian sweet treats:

Additionally, we have a kids’ menu, stromboli, calzones, salads, and party trays. Finally, don’t forget to check out our daily and luncheon specials.
